Time Off Requests and Approvals in Odoo 14

Functional Odoo 14

How important is leave management and approval in an organization? Leave approval is very crucial as the leave management policy of an organization decides the employee-employer relationship. A good employee relation can be assured with a good leave management policy.

Here, Odoo 14, the latest version of the most sophisticated open software for leave management, brings to the fore a number of employee-friendly features. Odoo 14 helps an employer to quickly complete all leave related requests. It also eases the task of an employee to file leave applications. Instead of taking the traditional route for leave application submission, an Odoo assisted firm can depend on an integrated leave management system. The age-old written leave application and the recently used email communication for leave management have become outdated with software platform integration.

In this blog, let us discuss the benefits of Odoo 14 for managing leave request generation, approval, and employee relation.

Leave Request or Time Off request

The Time off feature of Odoo 14 allows a user or employee to apply for leave through the proper system. This system will help the employee choose the correct leave type and create a request. 

Request creation is a simple task in Odoo 14. For this, you have to click the Create tab and then fill or check the required columns.

Select Leave Type

Odoo 14 also supports the selection of leave type in a quick way. The system will help you choose the leave type you prefer by providing you with the details of all available leave types. You can also mark the required leave hours or leave days using the feature. 

As the employer or manager will be responsible for creating Time Off types, this will help to set all available leave types in the list. The number of different types of leave allotted can also be accessed. 

Validation of Leave

The employer can set a leave validating authority for different types of leaves. This will enable the integration of different departments and help to manage the operations of different wings. The validating authority will be responsible to validate the leave.  The employee will be able to choose his validating officer from the list while creating a leave request. Different types of leave can be validated by different persons.

Leave duration setting

The employee will be able to set the duration of leave by clicking the corresponding columns. This will help the person to choose the start date of leave and end date of leave. If the leave is being taken for a few hours, the starting hour and ending hour can be marked instead.

Work Entry made easy

In Odoo 14, work entry management is easy for the benefit of the user. It helps the user to easily manage generic Time Off, paid time off, Home Working, and compensatory off.

It will also enable the user to create Over time and display such changes in the salary slip. 

Allocating Time Off

A user can easily request for allocating Time Off using an Allocation request. This will help the user to get additional leaves and non-paid leave. 

Time Off Approval Management

Once the employee sends a request, the manager will get an alert. The manager will be able to get a compact view of all leave applications pending his approval. The status of leave application, name of the employee, type of leave request, and other details can be accessed with ease. This will help the manager quickly complete the approval process.


The use of Odoo 14 will help you to avoid messages, phone calls or other communication to get the leave approved as the manager gets auto alert. The feature also allows the manager to leave a comment for the employee.

Here, with Odoo you can manage every aspect of leave. The leave management system which can be integrated with the Human Resources operations, Accounts, and with different departments helps in improving overall coordination of the operations. A manager will be able to plan the operation of his wing with an effective leave management system. It will also support the manager to avoid the sanctioning of leave too many employees together as it would affect the operation of the department.

Another benefit of a proper leave management system is that it will help the accounts wing to calculate the salary taking into account the non-paid leave days and other details. The payment for overtime work can also be calculated by integrating leave with accounts. The HR wing who is responsible for maintaining all records and work schedules of the employee will also benefit from the Time Off management module. They will get the leave requests and approval documents documented automatically for future reference.

In Short, Odoo 14 can offer you the best leave management support with Odoo Time-Off Module
